Whiskey & Mango BarBeQue

Everybody has their condiment of choice. As a kid I chose ranch on everything, yes everything. Now its barbeque sauce, not on everything though. Unfortunately barbeque doesn’t pair well with my yogurt and granola.  I’m at a point in my cooking career where I’ve stopped buying the pre-made ready to use condiments and sauces and have begun making my own. It’s inexpensive, healthier, and the quality is a million times better, plus I can change up the recipe and incorporate whatever my wild imagination feels like adding.

When I made this recipe I didn’t expect to get a high yield out of it but I got just over a quart. This recipe will go awesome with ribs, and pulled pork! You might notice that I didn’t include molasses in my recipe. The only reason is simply because I don’t like molasses. Although I do think molasses is mandatory in bbq due to the added flavor, this recipe turned out excellent without it. Add it into your batch if you wish.
